Do you need any advice about how to develop academic regulations?

If you have any questions about the work involved in developing academic regulations at the Faculty of Arts, please feel free to contact SNUK at the following email address: arts.uddannelseskvalitet@au.dk.

SNUK can help you to find answers to specific questions about existing academic regulations, as well as questions about producing new academic regulations or changing old ones. 

Here are some examples of the kind of questions we can help you with:

  • When can I produce new academic regulations, and what’s the process involved?
  • I’m going to produce some new academic regulations. How do I get started, and who should I work with?
  • What’s involved in choosing the form of examination?
  • How should I assess the students based on the academic regulations applying to the course I am teaching?
  • Which rules do I need to consider when I produce new academic regulations?
